Strategic Partnerships

Sector Partnerships are partnerships of companies, from the same industry and in a shared labor market region, with education, workforce development, economic development and community organizations.


They primarily focus on the education and workforce training needs of an industry, but modern Next Gen sector partnerships focus on other issues related to an industry’s competitiveness.


This ensures deeper, broader, longer-term industry engagement.
